I Have a Sinking Feeling....
I cut the bamboo place mat cross wise to the measurement of the circumference of the bowl, below the lip.
I got lucky there. I didn't have to cut the bamboo lengthwise. The bowl just happened to be the right size to fit an even number of the slats.
I cut another piece of wood to cover the inside back seam of the place mat. I glued it into a tube and let it dry.
I then glued the bowl into the top of it. I banded it with lengths of ribbon to cover the weaving on the mat. The glue in the front is still drying...Oops! It will not show when dry.
Then I put the faucets and a drain in place with super glue.
"We have to test it!" She was so excited that I put some water in it...Yes. It actually holds water!
I am not going to show you what she did to it next. It now is a dirty stainless steel sink...Does that sentence even make sense? Dirty and stainless at the same time?
Anyway, we now have water in the cottage...
I am still trying to get the formula for the shrinking potion...So far no luck...Thus, the sinking feeling....
See you tomorrow.
